Multifunction engine warning lamp
Took my 6 month old Grand Cherokee 3.0L CRD back to the dealer today with the amber engine warning lamp lit. The lamp has Been on for a week. The handbook referes to a number of causes and recommends a trip to the dealer if the lamp stays on for a while. Dealer says the fault code was P049D, Exhaust gas recirculation "A" control exceeded learning limit. This is a pending fault code and not an actual alarm. Can anyone shed a light on what the significance of this warning is ? Would it not be better to hide pending codes until service time rather than throw a lamp on the dash requiring a trip to the dealer for shrugged shoulders and a reset.
This is not a rant, love the car. Best Grand yet and very good CRD engine. Getting the quoted 34MPG (UK)
